The young ladies boarding in the Institution will rise at the ringing of 
the bell in the morning, adjust their rooms, aud be engaged in study till 
breakfast. And it shall be the duty of the Matron to see that this rule is 
complied -with. 

Collecting in any of the halls, boisterous talking and laughing, or the 
making of any unnecessary noise, in or out of study hours, will be consid- 
ered a misdemeanor. 

The young ladies will at no time be permitted to visit the post-office, nor 
will any one be permitted to go to town oftener than once a week, and then 
only in company with some member of the Faculty, or some one appointed 
by some member of the Faculty. 

During the Sabbath day, walking on the streets or commons for pleasure, 
collecting in each other's rooms for idle conversation or amusement, as well 
as all practices prohibited in well-bred Christian families, and receiving 
visits, are totally forbidden. 

Each student will be expected to attend Church in the forenoon on the 
Sabbath, at such place of worship as her parents or guardian may desire. 

If any young lady shall know of any misdemeanor or violation of any of 
the rules of the Institution, by a scholar, and shall, when inquired of by 
any of the Faculty, refuse to give the name of such offender — she, by so re- 
fusing, shall be deemed 'guilty of a high offense, and be punished accord- 
ingly. 

Each student will be required to have the lights in her room extinguished, 
and to retire at, or a quarter before ten o'clock; and the Steward shall see 
that the house is closed at ten o'clock. 

The young ladies will not be permitted to make calls, except by per- . 
mission of some member of the Faculty; nor to receive calls, except in the 
parlor, and in the presence of some member of the Faculty, or Matron; and 
in no instance will they attend any ball or party, or engage in any amusement 
forbidden by the Faculty. 

Ho young lady shall be permitted to contract debts or buy goods, without 
the written consent of her parents or guardian; and a copy of such per- 
mission shall be handed to the President. 

Young ladies boarding in the Institution will be under the protection 
of the Faculty. But the Faculty can not be responsible for the deportment 
of young ladies boarding out of the Institution, except during recitation 
hours.

The Fokt Wayne Female College, incorporated by the Legislature of the 
state in the year 1846, has now been in successful operation for nearly seven 
years. It is situated in the most pleasant part of the city, commanding an 
extensive view of the town and country. It is under the patronage of the 
North and North-Western Indiana conferences. 

The government of the Institution is mild, but decided. The Faculty 
will, at all times, exercise over the students a hind and parental supervision. 

Pains will be taken to develop the intellectual powers, to train the mind 
to habits of close thought and reasoning, and to educate the heart in the 
purest principles of Christian morality. 

A register of the merit of the students in their daily recitations is kept by 
each member of the Faculty; also, a register of demerit, in which absences 
from daily recitations, and all violations of the rules and regulations of the 
College are punctually recorded. An abstract of the standing of each 
student can be obtained by request of parent or guardian.
